In March of 2005 news broke out of attacks by a vampire against the Grecu family in Cernele, Craiova. In present day it is actually annexed to the city and is located in Dolj, Romania [the district of Oltenia].
The events had been going on for the better half a year and things seams to escalate so the members of the family decided to investigate.
Both the authorities and the priests were informed of what was going on.
Although the family had cut itself out of the electrical system [for reasons unspecified] the panel was frequently tampered with, the outlets and switches were found burnt and rocks would fall on and in the house breaking things.
It was concluded that a dead relative, Irina Ciorobea, who had been buried well over 20 years ago, was to blame for the paranormal activity surrounding the home.
The family decided to open up the grave on the 12th of March 2005 and the local priest was called to do a blessing ceremony.
It was assumed that 20 years ago at the funeral the old priest must have skipped a couple of prayers and that`s why the girl became a vampire.
All was well for an given period of time, when the oldest son – Adrian Grecu – claimed that he was communicating with the ghost of the woman and that she was still around the house despite the family holding special masses.
The trust about the supposed vampire came out only when a film producer found out about the case and wanted to do a documentary.
He obtained permission from the family to plant cameras in various locations all over the house, but did not disclose the exact places where he installed them.
The images he shot on some of them were a shock to the community!
The young 12 year old was bringing stones into the home and smashed different objects making sure he wasn`t seen on the cameras he knew about. Also, he simulated being dragged across the floor by ghosts and scratched himself on the back [in some articles it was reported that he cut himself with a knife but it seams to hard for a child to do so since it is also specified that the wounds were on the back]. He would then cry out for his parents alleging that the dead woman attacked him.
The explanation satisfied all the parties involved except for the parents.
They were convinced that something was influencing the boy or possessing him.
The young Adrian was supposed to have been submitted to a psychiatric control but since the interest of the media ended when it all came about I couldn`t find any follow-ups. If there ever were any it`s most likely that those articles were deleted since they didn`t draw any traffic.
